DETROIT .(P)-Standing on al-
most the exact spot where he
launched his political career less;
than six years ago, Gov. George
Romney announced yesterday he
will "fight for and win the Re-
publican nomination for President
of the United States."
Romney became the first major
figure in either party to announce
aspirations for the highest politi-
cal office in the land.

"I have decided to fight for and
win the Republican nomination
and election as President of the
United States.'
The anouncement came in an
11-minute speech, which attacked
President Johnson and was filled
with declarations of moral duty
typical of the devout Mormon.
After the speech, he hurried
into the first acknowledged camn-
paign strategy meeting with top

our young men with no end :n
sight. We are becoming a house
divided."
"The crime rate mounts and
over half the major crimes are
committed by teen-agers," he
added. "We have begun to see
acceptance of irresponsibility as
a way of life. There is a growing
aimlessness and flabbiness in our
American life."
Romney told scores of news-
men after his announcement that
the No. 1 plank in his campaign
platform will be "leadership and
the re-establishment of truth and
morality in America."
'Just Peace'
He also said he would remain
in office as governor while cam-
paigning.
Romney did not say he was the
only candidate who could solve
America's problems, but he said
a Republican alone could pursue
a "just peace" in Vietnam "un-
shackled by mistakes of the past."
He said he would complete his
schedule of primaries, regardless
of the outcome in the early ones.
He describes himself as an "under-
dog."'
A group of his campaign aides
head for New Hampshire tomorrow
for a nine-day trip to, lay ground-
work for Romney's bid for votes in
that state's primary, the nation's
first, March 12.
Romney plans to leave Dec. 7
on a trip abroad that will take him
from Western Europe around the
globe to Southeast Asia. He said a
setback this week in his attempt
to drive an open housing law
through the state legislature will
not keep him at home although the,.
debate may reach a peak during
-his absence.

U.S., Other Nations
Keep Money Values
Cut Pound from $2.80 to $2.40,
Impose Drastic Credit Restrictions
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The British government has devalued the pound, but led by the
United States, the world's big banking nations announced they would
not alter their currency, thus at least initially permitting the
devaluation to work its full effect in stimulating Britain's sagging
export trade.
In addition to cutting the value of the pound from $2.80 to $2.40,
the British government imposed drastic new credit restrictions and
sought a $1.4 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund
to stave off bankruptcy.

The National convention of
Young Democratic Clubs of Amer-
ica in Hollywood, Fla., yesterday
elected as president of the na-
tional organization a strong sup-
porter of President Johnson and
rejected a peace caucus proposal
which called for an unconditional
halt to , the bombing in North
Vietnam.
R. Spencer Oliver, who resigned
from the staff of the Democratic
National Committee to run for
president, was elected without
opposition as the nine other can-
didates withdrew during the
course of the convention. The
leading peace candidate, Alan
Reed, withdrew after the defeat
of the peace caucus resolution.

phrey addressed the convention.
before the election and told his
haudience, "The retreaters will
have trouble settling on one Pres-
idential candidate who will suit
their divergent views of the
world."
Humphrey added, "Those who
think America is involved in the
world for keeps and who want
this nation to play a role of firm
and creative leadership will vote
for President Lyndon Johnson.
"Those who want to let the
world settle the issues of war and
peace, development and starva-
tion without American participa-
tion will have to find themselves
' another candidate," the Vice'-
President declared.
'Communist Aggression'
The nation, he told the dele-
gates, must realize "we face in
Vietnam no peaceful reformers
but cynical, Communist-
initiated aggression and terror."
He said that the Communists,
now unable to win the war mil-
itarily, are now hoping for a
victory "on the American home-
front."

After rejecting the peace cau-
cus resolution, the convention
adopted, after an all-night ses-
sion a moderate supported pro-
posal which "suggested for the
consideration of the President"
temporary halt in the bombing
of North Viet Nam. The resolu-
tion, seen as satisfactory to the
administration, also supported
the President's efforts to bring
about negotiations. It also des-
cribed the Young Democrats as
part of -the "responsible majority
of the American people" who sup-
port Johnson.
'GOP Leader

DETROIT P)-Leading Repub-
licans arpund the nation hailed
Gov. George Romney's entry into
the race for the GOP Presidential
nomination yesterday. Democrats
reacted caustically.
New York's Gov. Nelson A.
Rockefeller, a Romney backer, said
the Michigan chief executive most
closely fits what would be a "mod-
erate, able, winning candidate in
1968."
Nixon Complimentary
Former Vice President Richard
M. Nixon said Romney was "an
effective and energetic campaign-
er" with "an excellent record of
service as governor."
Another potential GOP nom-
nee, California's Gov. Ronald
Reagan, said it was too soon for
him to back Romney or anyone
else. ; .
Sen. Charles H. Percy (R-Ill.)
welcomed Romney's announce-
ment. He called him "a great
credit to the free enterprise sys-
tem, the most outstanding gover-
nor in Michigan's history."

a statement that he could "re-
affirm unequivocally the com-

price of $35 an ounce."
The President declared that

nations-France, West Germany,
Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium

their central bank governors to-

International Aid
Informants said the ministers
and bank governments will ex-
amine what international aid can
be given to the British currency.
At the same time, it was learned
that an emergency meeting of
the so-called Group of Ten - the
world's major trading nations -
would probably be held next week
to consider Britain's request to
draw $1.4 billion from the Inter-
national Monetary Fund.
The Labor government said
special measures will be taken to,
relieve any hardship caused to
the poor by devaluation and the
sweeping credit restrictions.

E conomnists
Praise Pound
Devaluation'
By JENNY STILLER
Devaluation of the pound ster-
ling will have a favorable impact
on the economies of Britain and
the world, 'according to University
economists.
"Hopefully, Britain will now be
able to make up her balance of
payments," says Prof. Robert M.
Stern of the economics department
"Devaluation will make British
exports more competitive with
those of other countries."
Devaluation, or lowering the ex-
change value, of the pound will
enable Britain to sell her exports
at lower prices, because the price
of an item sold for a pound in
another country will be the equiv-
alent of 40 cents less, while pro-
duction and transport costs -- as
well as income from sales -
will remain the same to the Brit-
ish producer.
But in order to make the policy
work, Stern warns, "the British
government will have to keep the
lid on its domestic economy."
Besides making British goods
cheaper abroad, devaluation will
make imports more expensive.
Since Britain imports most of
her raw materials and much of
her food, the average Briton will
find his standard of living re-
duced by increased prices.
If the Labor government can
keep trade unions from working
for increased wages to compensate
for the higher cost of living, in-
flation within the United Kingdom
can probably be kept under con-
trol.
Prof. Daniel Suits of the econ-
omics department explains that
"the British chose a couple of years
ago to try to change buying power
internally by deflating their econ-
omy, rather than devalue the
pound." This has not succeeded, so
they have been forced to devalue
anyway.
"I think it is a move to be wel-
comed," he adds. "I had hoped
that Wilson would take this step
when he first took office.
